Skip to comments.Which Ice Cream Brand Is Big, Gay — And Defiantly Kosher?

Kosher ice cream lovers have a lot to celebrate this Pride month, specifically in the form of a pint of Big Gay Ice Cream. Thats because when the ice cream truck-turned-brick-and-mortar shop decided to package its popular soft serve to be sold nationally, it sought and received kosher certification.
The pints of soft-serve deliciousness, which debuted in March and are sold in grocery stores and online, are officially under the auspices of the kashrut division of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America. Or, as it is colloquially known, the OU.
While its understandable that an up-and-coming brand would seek kosher certification to expose its products to a larger audience, its not clear why the OU would have allowed the company to receive its certification. Being that the Orthodox Union still maintains its opposition to institutionalized gay marriage and homosexual relations, its odd to see its easily recognizable label emblazoned next to the words Big Gay Ice Cream (Especially when it comes from an ice cream shop that was christened by a drag queen).
Often, kosher certification agencies will take issue with the name of a brand, deeming it inappropriate. Such was the case with former upscale restaurant Jezebel, whose name referred to a wicked woman in the Bible who led her husband astray. It was forced by the Orthodox Union to change its name to JSoho.
So what makes Big Gay Ice Cream any different? Who knows, but we would hazard to guess that the difference may lie in a simple fact: One is a restaurant catering specifically to Jews; the other a national brand that just happens to want kosher-keeping Jews to be able to enjoy ice cream from a company that has become a beloved New York institution.
I’ll stick with Carvel for my kosher ice cream needs, thank you.
Who wants peanuts, corn, and blood in their ice cream? Not me.
I’ve been boycotting Ben & Jerry’s for years because of they’re political stance.Add Big Gay Kosher to that list.

And the bizarro world just gets more - bizarre. Each day, sometimes, or so it seems.
Have they put Obama’s mug on one yet?
Are they sure it’s ice cream?
When we lived in NE Oklahoma we would sometimes stop at Braums and get ice cream cones. It was pretty good.
I worked one Summer at a snack shop which sometimes served several thousand people a day. People bragged on a local brand, Biltmore and it was good. We were allowed to eat all we wanted for free and I got to noticing that the Sealtest brand was actually better.
I mentioned it to the ice cream deliveryman one day and he said they (Sealtest) outsold Biltmore by a wide margin.
Braums is always awesome.
Must go there after Whataburger.
So rare when I get a chance to do so.
Faggotry ain’t kosher.
My guess would be Ben and Jerry.
Looks like I guessed right. http://www.jpost.com/Not-Just-News/Trending-Now/The-definitive-ranking-of-Ben-and-Jerrys-Kosher-for-Passover-flavors-488116
Can you be Gay and Kosher at the same time?
If you haven’t tried Talenti Gelato, check it out. It originated here in Dallas I believe. All flavors are Kosher. They don’t preach.
I’m afraid to ask what’s in there.
I’ll continue to make my own - it is just not hard to do and I can make whatever kind I want.
Talenti is excellent! We get it when on sale.
I love the Talenti Caribbean Coconut.
I’m addicted to their Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Gelato.
Usually make my own.
Doubt it’s cholov yisroel...
